washington irving professor. please welcome brenda wineapple and nathaniel philbrick. [applause] >> on my way over here, nathaniel, i talked about how both of these subjects are, you know, obviously the most, you know, among the notable eras of american history. how could we characterize, you know, a comparatively between your book and brenda's when it comes to, you know, intensity and relevance, you know, where both in the revolution and with the civil war there wasn't very much of a clear future in any era. >> yeah. well, i was thinking about this question, actually, when i heard about the great opportunity to be paired with brenda. and my "bunker hill" begins and ends with john quincy adams, it begins with him at 7 years old, standing on a hill with his mother then in her early 30s on june 17, 1775 watching the battle of bunker hill from a hill about 12 miles away, and later in his life he would record in his journal it was an experience -- an unforgettable experience. both of them were weeping as they watched the british navy unleash cannon ball on the patriots gathered on b

government made on washington d.c. but i want to make it clear that in reality and in my book fair is much more push back within a city. even at its most politically important state residents challenge the federal government's plans and by failing to comply by insisting on home rules and offering a different account or explanation of the events than the government's version. the focus on the way the federal government uses the district to craft the modern drugs. first let me give some sense of existing scholarship on the origins of the drug war and where my own work fits in with that literature. most scholars to have looked at this issue emphasize two things, first classification of certain drugs as narcotics, apps, morphing, cocaine and later marijuana and second their removal from general circulation, all of which took place in the early part of the 20th century and was deeply tied to the reputation these drugs had acquired for recreational use among racial minorities. in my own work i've tried to emphasize the steps between these events and punishment and prohibition in your >>

washington for having the at that merit to -- temerity to write a memoir. i'm not sure why because many people write their memoirs about their time in washington. why do you think you face such scrutiny for this? >> i think first of all i'm pretty blunt and candid about the mess in the place. and, as i say, it's not just about the fact that i was brought to washington to try to salvage two wars but i had to wage war against the congress, against my own building, the department of defense and at times against the white house, often just to get the right things done in terms of support for men and women serving in afghanistan and iraq and even such horrible things as cutting the defense budget. >> jon: are you been surprised that the media has glommed on to the more sensational aspects? >> not surprised. i've been around too long for that. but i think that -- people have kind of proven one of the points in the book which is washington is so polarized that absolutely everything is used to prove one political point or another. so people have cherry-picked individual quotes if it supports th

caricature. bullying, retribution. guest: he is not exactly a sweetie pie. host: the washington post describes terry mcauliffe as exuberant and best friend bill clinton in attendance for the ceremony. "the new york times" also pointing out that they were there. in his inaugural speech, he makes no mention of bill and hillary clinton. guest: i think it was very smart of him to get the blessing from the clintons to do just that. this he has a gift of essentially bringing people together. you would not have known that because he was such a diehard partisan, and such a clinton supporter. he also had a vision for virginia, and what we are seeing is that he is winning over skeptics, bringing people to his side. this is a great way to start out on the right foot. i give kudos to terry for starting out on the right foot. guest: he started out with a huge lead, and hung on against a very flawed opponent. he hung on by his fingernails to win. he goes back to the age-old question what it just shows how smart the clintons are. they had enough sense to show up because it would generate national c
